What is better, the Vexxum or Marucci Team bats?
Both the DeMarini Vexxum BBCOR (DXVNC) and the Marucci Team BBCOR (MCBT) would be nice options that are good performers. Any preference would be based on which design you prefer.

Contact hitters tend to prefer a two-piece design while popwer hitters prefer a one-piece design.

Both are great bats by DeMarini but if you want to take full advantage of a two-piece bat I would go with the DeMarini Vexxum (DXVNC).

There be a little bit more flex in the DeMarini Vexxum (DXVNC) compared to the two-piece aluminum in the DeMarini Versus (DXVSC).

The DeMarini Vexxum BBCOR: DXVNC Adult is an adult -3 bat and is too heavy, even for a strong nine year old. We do not recommend using a -5 bat until middle school. We recommend a -10 youth big barrel bat such as the 2014 DeMarini Vexxum: DXVXR Senior League.

My son is 13, 5'11" and about 190 lbs. He is a power hitter on his team but needs a serious upgrade on his bat. Help us find the right bat and size.
With the height and weight given we suggest a 33" and 30 oz. bat. The 2012 DeMarini Vexxum BBCOR: DXVNC Adult would be more for a contact hitter. I would look into the DeMarini Voodoo's they are end loaded and more for a power hitter.
My son 14 years old and he is 6'2", 135 lbs. He has quick hands and has hated his 34" -3 BBCOR Easton Typhoon as he says its too heavy. Any of your recommendations are appreciated. I checked your site bat size recommendations, and it indicates he needs a 32" 29 oz. is this the right selection size for his frame? Is this bat also considered a drop 3?
The 2012 DeMarini Vexxum BBCOR: DXVNC Adult would be a great choice as a replacement. A 32" bat would significantly reduce his weight. The 32" model is a drop -3, it's weight is 29 oz.
Is this bat for a power hitter like myself? If not, are there any bats in the same price range that are?
The 2012 DeMarini Vexxum BBCOR: DXVNC Adult is going to be more for a contact hitter. The Easton XL2 BBCOR: BB11X2 Adult is going to be your best bet. It is a two-piece design as well, but it has the end loaded design for power hitters.
Does air temperature limit when you can use this bat? Do you have to be concerned about the composite handle and the air temperature?
DeMarini recommends you restrict how much a bat is used when it is colder than 55 degrees. In colder temperatures, all bats are more susceptible to denting or cracking.
I definitely can't get the brand new $400.00 CF5 bat, so I was looking into the Vexxum, and I was wondering what the significant differences were between 2011, 2012, and 2013 Vexxum? I'm 17 yrs old, 5'7 and 150 lbs, so I was also wondering if I should get a 32" or a 33".
The same composite and alloy materials were used in the 2011 DeMarini Vexxum BBCOR and the 2012 DeMarini Vexxum BBCOR. The 2013 DeMarini Vexxum uses upgraded alloy material. Based on your height and weight we recommend a 32" bat.
My son is 5'7" and 130 lbs. He is a contact hitter with some power. We are deciding between the 2012 Vexxum or the 2013 M2M. What is your opinion? Thanks.
Based on his height and weight, we recommend a 31" model. The 2012 DeMarini Vexxum BBCOR: DXVNC Adult bat is a two-piece hybrid model with a composite handle and alloy barrel. The 2013 DeMarini M2M BBCOR: DXM2C Adult bat is two-piece fully alloy design. Both would be great options for a contact hitter.
Which one is better the vexxum 2011 or vexxum 2012? And which one should last longer?
The 2012 DeMarini Vexxum should outperform the 2011 both in performance and durability.
Which bat has the larger sweet spot? The 2012 DeMarini Vexxum or the 2012 Rawlings 5150 VELO? My Son is 13, he's 5'7" 135lbs, and has very good bat speed. Which bat would you recommend?
The Rawlings 5150 VELO BBCOR: BB51V Adult bat will have a larger (longer) barrel than the 2012 DeMarini Vexxum BBCOR: DXVNC Adult bat. That would mean it will also have a longer sweet spot. The Rawlings 5150 VELO is designed to help increase swing speed.

My son is 5'3" and is 110lbs. This is his first -3 BBCOR and BBCOR bats are required on his middle school team. He handled the 31" 26oz -5 Vexxum pretty well. Is this the logical choice for him now, and should he stay with the 31" bat?
The 2012 DeMarini Vexxum BBCOR: DXVNC Adult bat will be a good choice bat to transition to for your son. He is already acustom to the bat and has had past success with it. Moving up to a BBCOR will not be much of a change. It will only be a 2oz. increase in weight. Everything else will remain constant. A 31" bat is ideal for a hitter your son's size.
What would be a good bat for me. This bat or the TPX Omaha? I'm a freshman about to start high school ball and I am wondering what would let me have a better bat speed and more hits. I am 5'7 150 pounds.
The Louisville Slugger Omaha will be more evenly balanced for better bat speed.

My 12 year old son is 5'7" and weighs 155 pounds. Shouldn't he still be using a youth model (32 inch, 21 oz) vs a 33 inch, 30 oz. adult sized bat?
Typically, I see 12 year old players swinging a -8 to a -5 bat size. These will be senior league bat models. An adult size 2012 DeMarini Vexxum BBCOR: DXVNC would probably feel too heavy.

My some has a Vexxum 31" -3 with the USSSA sticker on it but i don't see the BBBCOR label. Is that going to be a problem use him using it in middle school play?
Actually, no -3 bat will have a USSSA stamp, unless it was a misprint on the manufacturer's end. The 2012 DeMarini Vexxum BBCOR: DXVNC is BBCOR certified and features the BBCOR stamp. Are you sure the bat you have is actually a -3, and not a -5 or -10? I ask because the -5 and -10 models of the Vexxum have the USSSA stamp, but not the BBCOR stamp because only -3 bats are eligible for BBCOR certification.

What are the advantages / disadvantages of a two piece bat vs. one piece? Comparing the DeMarini Vexxum and the Easton Typhoon.
The main difference between one-piece bats and two-piece bats is that one-piece models are developed as one continuous piece of metal as opposed to being pieces bonded together. Two-piece models are created in two sections, a barrel and a handle, and then those two pieces are bonded together. The main purpose and advantage for a two-piece bat is to reduce vibration for the batter's hands. Two-piece models also give you the ability to choose between a more flexible handle or a stiff, more rigid handle. With a one-piece model, all of the handles will be rigid and more stiff. The two-piece models also give players the ability to mix one part alloy with one part composite, another option that is not available for one-piece users. The main argument against two-piece models is that they are not as hard and act more like a wood bat, as opposed to one-piece aluminum bats which are seen as very hard and dense with little to no give. New hybrid bats with a composite handle bonded to an aluminum barrel are seen as a compromise between the two styles.

Based on your height and weight right now, a 32" Adult bat is recommended.
I'm about 5'9 180 lbs and I'm 17. What size do you recommend? 32' or a 33"?
Based on your height and weight, we recommend a 33" 2012 DeMarini Vexxum BBCOR.
The color of this bat, is it yellow or orange?
The DeMarini Vexxum BBCOR: DXVNC is a dark shade of yellow.
If I use a tuff sleeve on a bat can i hit the yellow dimpled balls in the cage?
A tuff sleeve will help a little bit when used with yellow dimpled pitching machine balls, but we still recommend you limit how much you use the bat under these conditions.
Can you use this bat at the bating cages frequently? Or is this a game only use bat?
That all depends on the type of balls used in the batting cage. If it uses real baseballs then batting cage use is absolutely okay. If it uses yellow dimpled balls, the we do not recommend using any bat as those type of balls can be detrimental to any type of bat.

In the sizes that we have higher inventory in, we are often able to get the bats for a reduced price from the manufacturer. In cases like this, we like to pass the savings on to our customers.
Why is the bat pack cheaper than the plain bat itself? I thought it would be more
Our bat pack prices are based on a number of factors including inventory. Sometimes bat packs are actually cheaper than a single when the bat pack is for sizes that we have a lot of inventory in.
Why is this bat pack so cheap? it's a little suspicious!
This is a closeout model on closeout pricing. Just like when car dealerships reduce the price on their previous year models. Nothing suspicious at all... We're just passing on the closeout savings to our customers.
Which bat is said to be better the Voodoo or the Vexxum? Also what bat pack would you recommend for myself being a power hitter the Vexxum and the M2M or the Vexxum and the Voodoo?
Thank you for your question. The DeMarini Voodoo has higher grade materials than the DeMarini Vexxum increasing the durability and performance. If you are a power hitter, I would recommend the Voodoo and Vexxum Bat Pack.
Would you recommend this or the Voodoo to a all around hitter, (gaps and just line drives up the middle etc)? Which one feels lighter and is easier to swing?
The 2012 DeMarini Vexxum BBCOR is more end loaded than the 2012 Demarini Voodo BBCOR.
If i am both a contact and power hitter, is this the bat for me?
I think so. The Vexxum is a great bat for an all-around hitter.
Are these bats used or still in the plastic wrap?
All bats are brand new unless marked as a "demo" bat. If it is not marked as a "demo" it will be brand new and still in the plastic.
My son is 5' and 90lbs (on a rainy day), he used a 30/20 in Little League and now has to use a -3. What bat do you recommend will help him make the transition to a bigger bat?
If your son has to move up to a -3 bat, I would recommend looking into the Easton S3 or the Rawlings 5150 Velo. Both of these bats will be very balanced and will help him make a smoother transition into a bat that much bigger than what he is currently used to.
Is this bat more for a power hitter or a contact hitter? Can you give me some examples of power hitting and contact hitting bats.
The 2012 DeMarini Vexxum is a two-piece bat that is typically better suited for contact hitters. Most power hitters prefer the feel of a one-piece bat, while more contact hitters prefer the feel of two-piece bats.
Does this bat have good pop?
Yes. The Vexxum is a bat that is known to have very good pop.
I have been playing baseball for a while but I am going into high school and have to use a BBCOR bat that's drop 3. Is this a good bat?
Yes, the 2012 DeMarini Vexxum BBCOR is an excellent bat for a contact hitter who is looking for a two-piece hybrid design at a great price. The Vexxum has a composite handle and alloy barrel and is game ready the day you buy it.
What's the difference between the Vexxum and the Easton Surge? I'm more of a line drive hitter so which would you recommend?
There really isn't a difference between the DeMarini Vexxum and the Easton Surge. Both bats two-piece designs with composite handles and alloy barrels. These bats will perform just about the same and either one would be a good choice for you.
Will this bat last a couple of seasons and what is your overall opinion of this bat?
Bats don't come with set lifespans, but the Vexxum is a very durable bat that I have seen last a couple of seasons. It's definitely a great bat will very good pop.
Will the vexxum be banned in the foreseeable future?
Absolutely not. The DXVNC is a BBCOR certified bat that is perfectly legal for use.
What's better this bat or the Marucci AP5?
The Marucci AP5 is a great wood bat, but I still wouldn't put it on the same level as the BBCOR Vexxum. The Vexxum will be a higher performing and more durable.
Is the 2012 Demarini Vexxum going to be legal for college baseball next year, and why did they lower the price so much?
The 2012 DeMarini Vexxum is BBCOR approved and will be legal for high school and college level play next year. DeMarini just released their new 2013 baseball line, which is why the prices on the 2012 models have been lowered.
I am a 5' 5" and 115 pounds and a power hitter. Should I get this bat or the Easton Surge?
Both the 2012 DeMarini Vexxum and the Easton Surge are great bats. However, if you are looking more for a power hitter, I would probably suggest going with the Easton Surge. The Surge is a one piece bat that is pretty stiff and will probably suit your needs better.
What is the difference between this bat and the Demarini Voodoo? Both are half and half, same brand, and same year, but the price is different. Why?
The Voodoo uses a higher quality composite material in the handle. This helps the bat with overall strength and performance. Both are excellent bats in DeMarini's line.
Would this bat or the Voodoo be most suited towards a contact hitter who likes to hit line drives?
Both the 2012 DeMarini Vexxum BBCOR and the 2012 DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR are good for contact hitters. The 2012 DeMarini Vexxum BBCOR will be more end loaded, better for a player with some power.
Is this bat top heavy and when does the 2013 model come out? My season is over 5/01/12.
This bat is not top heavy, it is pretty balanced. As far as we know, DeMarini is planning on releasing their new baseball bats around the end of April.
I've heard that the DeMarini Vexxum (2013) is coming out soon. When should it come out? Will it have an even swing weight and decent pop?
We believe the Demarini Vexxum should be coming out in late April to early May. The 2013 Vexxum should be very similar to the 2012 model in performance and swing weight.
Are all BBCOR bats -3's?
Yes, all BBCOR bats are -3.
I'm stuck between the Easton S3, Easton XL3, Omaha, and Vexumm. I'm 5'4, and 110 pounds, and line drive hitter.
All of these are great bats. The Easton S3, XL3, and the Omaha are all one piece bats. The main difference between these is the S3 and the Omaha are very balanced, while the XL3 has an end loaded feel. These bats are great options for power hitters. The Vexxum is a two piece bat, which is usually better suited for contact/gap hitters. This bat is also pretty balanced. Depending on whether you prefer a one piece or a two piece bat more, you can't really go wrong with any of these choices!
Hi, I'm 13, 5'7, and 125 pounds. I'm stronger than most of the kids in my age group (13-14). I was wondering if I should get this bat or the Louisville Slugger Exogrid 2. I'm also mainly a power hitter, with pitches at speed of 60-70 mph. Thanks.
If you are more of a power hitter, I would suggest going with the EXOGRID2. The DeMarini Vexxum is a great bat, but since it has a two piece design, it is usually better suited for contact/gap hitters. The one piece design of the EXOGRID2 makes the bat pretty stiff, thus helping you generate even more power for your hits.
My son is a junior in HS. He is 6ft2 and weighs 180lbs. He is a high high .300 hitter with decent power, what would be a good choice for a bat?
If your son is a power hitter, I would suggest going with a one piece bat. These bats will be pretty stiff and will help generate even more power. Some of our most popular one piece bats right now are the Easton S3, Easton XL3, Rip-It Prototype II, Rawlings 5150, and Louisville Slugger, just to name a few.
I'm 5foot2 113 pounds and 14 years old is this a good bat for me?
Yes. Based on your height and weight though, a 30 inch 27 ounce model would be recommended.
My son's 5'5 or 5'6 and is about 145 pounds. Whats a good size for this bat for my son?
Based on his height and weight, I would suggest going with a 32 inch bat. If you need further assistance in trying to find the right size for your son, feel free to use our bat coach feature located at the top of our webpage. This is a great tool in helping to find the right size of bat for someone!
For my middle school varsity team, 7th-8th grade, we have to use a BBCOR. Would this bat be good for the transitional year. And do they make a BBCOR smaller than 31 inches, because my friend is only 4'11''.
Well, the DXVNC is a BBCOR bat, so...I'm not 100% sure how to answer your question since it's kind of hard to transition from a BBCOR bat to a BBCOR bat. A few bats available in smaller sizes are the Easton S3, Easton Typhoon, Nike Aero Thunder, Easton Hammer and Easton Reflex.
Does this bat come in BBCOR and lighter than -3?
The only bats that will have BBCOR certification are adult -3 bats. Senior league bats will not be BBCOR certified.
My son is playing on a 14U senior fed tournament team and they now want us to change to a BBCOR -5. Is there such a thing?
All BBCOR bats will be -3 Adult bats. Please check with your league official or coach for clarification on bat rules.
Im a power hitter, and ive had a demarini voodoo for 2 years, loved it. In my conversion to bbcor, im looking for something a little cheaper but something i can still use to smack the ball out. is this bat a good way to go?
If you want something similar to the Voodoo, but a little cheaper in price, the Vexxum is a great option with similar feel and performance.
How long does it take before the bat breaks in?
The Vexxum has an alloy barrel and won't require a full break in period like a composite bat. The Vexxum does have a composite handle though, and I would recommend about 50-100 hits off a batting tee starting out at 40% power and gradually increasing. Also, be sure to rotate the bat a quarter of an inch between each hit.
how does the easton xl2 compare to this bat im sorta a contact hitter?
The XL2 will feel a little more end-loaded in my opinion. If you're more of a contact hitter, I would lean towards the Vexxum
Is this bat good for a power hitter?
This is a two piece bat, which is usually more preferred by contact hitters, but a power hitter could certainly still use it. Power hitters typically prefer the stiffness of a one piece bat, instead of the flex that a two piece design offers.
I am 5'4" 108 lbs. What would be an appropriate size for this bat (Demarini Vexxum), if I am a line drive hitter who chokes up a bit?
Based on your height and weight, I would suggest going with a 29 inch bat. If you need any further assistance in selecting the right size for you, feel free to use our bat coach feature located at the top of the webpage or give us a call at 1-866-321-2287!
I am having trouble deciding whether to get the Voodoo or the Vexxum. I'm 6'4" and 185 lbs, not necessarily a power hitter. Also, what dimensions should i use?
Based on customer feedback, the Voodoo is a little better performing than the Vexxum. Based on your height and weight a 34 inch 31 ounce bat is recommended.
I have 13 Year Old Boy 5'2" 120 lbs. would a 31" 28 oz bat be to big?
A 31" is very common at that age. This will be a good size for him as it will last him multiple seasons.
We recommend a 30 inch based on his height and weight.
I'm 15 5' 8'' 150lbs. What size vexxum is good for me?
Thank you for your question. Based on your body size, I would recommend a 32 inch, 29 ounce bat. We do carry the 2012 DeMarini Vexxum BBCOR: DXVNC in that size as well.
Is this bat stamped with the BBCOR label or is it a sticker?
The 2012 DeMarini Vexxum BBCOR: DXVNC is stamped with the BBCOR label. This makes it legal for high school and collegiate play.
14 year old boy, 5'9" 125 lbs. What size Vexxum would be the right size for me?
Based on your height and weight, I would suggest using a 31" 28oz bat. If you need any further help in trying to decide the right bat size for you, feel free to use our bat coach feature located at the top of the webpage or give us a call at 1-866-321-2287!
I'm 5'11" and about 165 pounds. I am not a power hitter, I just go for base hits. Would this bat be good for me, and if so, what size should I get it in?
The DeMarini Vexxum would be a great choice for you. It is a two piece bat that is usually preferred by contact hitters or hitters who may not have as much power as some. Based on your height and weight I would suggest going with a 32 inch bat. If you need any further assistance with selecting the right size for you, feel free to use out bat coach feature located at the top of the webpage.
I'm 13 years old 5' and 90 pounds if I were allowed to use this bat in my league would it be good for me? I am not a power hitter
The Vexxum is a two-piece bat that is great for hitters who may not have as much natural power. I think this would be a good fit. It is BBCOR certified and legal across all leagues.
Is this bat considered a single wall bat?
The 2012 DeMarini Vexxum BBCOR is a single walled alloy bat.
How does the Vexxum compare to the AXE Element?
They'll be pretty different. The Axe Element is a stiff one-piece bat. The Vexxum is a two-piece bat that offers more flex. If you're a stronger player I would lean towards the Axe. If you're more of a contact hitter I would lean towards the Vexxum.
Is this a better bat than a tpx warrior?
Both bats are great models, the vexxum is going to be a two piece design giving it more flex through the hitting zone, the warrior is going to be a stiffer feel because of the one piece design
Is the knob at the end of the bat smaller than regular bats or is it the same?
The DXVNC has a standard size knob. For any further information please contact our customer service at 1-866-321-2287.
Hearing common feedback on the Vexxon and the white on red 5150 Rawlings. Would lead one way or the other for contact line drive hitter? Local high school has had rave reviews on the 5150.
The Vexxum is a two piece bat, better designed for a contact hitter. The 5150 is a one piece alloy bat, usually preferred by power hitters.
im a power hitter should i get this , the easton omen, or the easton xl2
Thank you for your question. All three of these bats are very good choices and will perform well on the field. The Easton XL2 is endloaded and designed more for power hitters. The Easton Omen will be a little bit stiffer than the DeMarini Vexxum, which is good for power hitters.
What is the coldest temp that this bat should be used?
You shouldn't use any alloy under 40 degress
Is this bat legal to use in the Juniors Level of Little League Baseball?
This bat is going to be made for High School and College players. I would double check with your league first.
which is best, this bat, the 5150 velo, the cf5, or the s1
Wow, all of these will be very high end BBCOR bats, you can't go wrong with either one. The CF5 and S1 will have composite barrels and the others will have alloy barrels.
Do you sell the 2012 Demarini Voodoo BBCOR: DXVDC Adult if so, How much?
Yes we do. The price is $299.99.

The DeMarini Vexxum will be a hybrid design having alloy barrel and composite handle. The Rip It models will be a one piece all alloy bat. We have heard great reviews on both bats.
Is this bat legal for 13u play in 2012?
If your league allows you to use BBCOR, then yes. BBCOR is only used for High School and College

This is the 2012 model. We don't have an estimated time when the 2013 models are going to come in or when the price will drop on 2012 model.
What's better bat , this or the nike cm2?
Both bats use top of the line alloy and composite materials in the handles. They are going to be similar in performance. You can't go wrong with either one.
whats the difference between the vexxum and the vodoo/?
The T3 Strut composite is the most recent technology. With TR3, DeMarini seeks to replicate the triangular structure of a crystal, as that is what helps make crystals one of the toughest and most stable compounds on earth. TR3 Composite is strong, stable, and predictable - without any unnecessary weight.
Can a 13 yr. old (5'10"), playing USSSA use this bat? His pitching coach has suggested a -5 bat and he also works-out with the H.S. baseball. He is a switch hitter and I don't want to spend $200+ on a USSSA 1.15BPF bat he can only use for 1 1/2 more seasons??? Any suggestions?
If you think he can handle the -3 that's what I would do. That way he will be able to use it once he gets to high school.
I recently bought this bat and hit with it and the next day i picked it up and their was something rattling around in it like little rocks is this normal or should i send it back
The Vexxum is a 2 piece bat, and as such there is a glue type material that is used to bond the pieces together. As the two parts are pushed together, some of the bonding agent, beads up on the inside, and when hit it comes loose. It will not affect the performance of the bat at all. But if it is something you feel uncomfortable with, give our reps a call and we can help decide what is best.
My son is not a strong hitter. What would be better the Vexxum or Easton S3
The Vexxum would be a better choice. The S3 is going to be better suited for a power hitter.
what's the deal with the #33.5&why what's the diffferance now you got me and my totally confused?help us or we are goona go for the easton thanks eddie
DeMarini did the different sizes as an extra option. That half ounce extra or less can make a difference to some batters.
how long will the 2012 vexxum be around before the 2013 model comes out??
Generally the next yr model comes out around April.
How does this bat compare to the Exogrid 2, as far as the weight being balanced?
Both will feel a little more end-loaded than average. The Exogrid2 does feel a little more end-loaded than the Vexxum in my opinion.
Is this bat top heavy?
The Vexxum will have a slight end-loaded feel to it.
how does this bat compare to the 2011 BBCOR Vexxum
The 2012 Vexxum is going to be a more durable bat with increased pop compared to the 2011 model
Do you think that this bats price will drop at all from now until chirstmas?
The price is set by the manufacture so we don't know if the bat will go on sale. Since it is a 2012 model it will probably not go on sale withhin the next two months.
What bat would you suggest more: The Vexxum or the Easton Surge?
The Vexxum and Surge are both two piece bats. Both are going to be great bats. You can't go wrong with either one.
Does this bat have a big sweetspot? And is it top heavy??
The Vexxum is slightly end weighted. It does have a pretty good sweetspot.
Does this bat have a break-in period?
There is no break-in period with this bat because it has an alloy barrel.
How good is this bat compared to the other half and half demarini bats?
The Vexxum is a very nice bat. It is a slightly more balanced bat than the Voodoo. The alloy barrel does allow for a good pop.
